Price Scale

Where the island wakes up. Stuck in an old south key strip center, Taste of Germany divides its sweets selection into two types: boozy and non-boozy. The shop’s liquor cakes include 21-and-up flavorings like vodka, tequila and whiskey. The recipes come from Tanja Hofmann, who launched the shop with her husband and son after moving from Frankfurt in 2011. Each cake includes up to a half-bottle of booze, Hofmann brags. On the sober side of the menu, Hofmann bakes streudels, cakes, pretzels and rolls, with a breakfast and lunch menu that’s heavy on egg dishes and simple sandwiches.
